ST Graveyard wrote:I haven't been in the scene for years so Atarimania is a bit new for me. I had a quick browse on the site and I have to say I'm very very impressed. I'm that impressed that I now feel a bit stupid for contacting Kim as it seems that Atarimania is a bit like the LemonAmiga for the ST scene. Mania seems to have a lot of similar features. I also really like the fact that you guys are following the pasti standard (always try and follow some kind of global standards, that is what I see in other scenes) and all the scans and other content just looks amazing.
Now, there are a few things important for me when a possible merge happens :
1) I know a lot of people have spend countless hours in filling the DB. I'm not gonna mention names because I'm afraid I will forget people, but it is important to me to merge as much of the content as possible, not only because it is cool to have as much info as possible, but also to honor the efforts of the people. Ok, one example, I know guys like Marcer have spend hours and hours of screenshot grabbing. I see AM has already a lot of them, but why not merge them as well. I mean, you can"t have to many different screenshots of a game, right? Just an idea.
Somethings I didn't see at AM which I immediately missed (but I haven't gotten an account yet, so I could be wrong) :
- A news page. Don't know which site these days is looked into for ST news? I know AL is not updated, LGD never had any, and the news of AtariAge is more console related ... Anyway, I haven't been in the scene much the past years

Will AtariMania be able to handle all of our extra data (e.g. my scanning of all 3D Construction Kit & STAC games and marking them as sub-genres?). We all (in AL) had our specialist subject areas and it would be nice to keep that all that data intact.
There's *lots* of credits fir PD games (coding, graphics, sound) that were added (even when tunes were ripped from commercial titles).

Since I'm curious - why prefer borderless? The ST did have borders, and those games and utils that did remove them should be as visibly better in screenshots as they were using
(Or did I misunderstand what you were talking about completely?)
